After hours of measuring and re-measuring, using the South arch for reference, I finally feel confident as to where the ends of the East & West arches need to be cut off. (plus a few extra inches, just in case) It was handy having a rotating laser and a wood template of the arch to help get it right.
David Adamson then came over with his Plasma Cutter to cut the beams. I tried my hand at the cutter but it wasn’t very pretty. Good thing the ends will get finished off by a professional welder when we erect the steel.
David took over, much more sure handed, while I held the cut off end from falling down the hill.
Three down, one more to go.
Now we can move on to the next step of supporting the arches in place ready to weld the “legs” on and then bolting them to the foundation.
Thanks, “Doyle”, I mean David.
Really love seeing what all you are doing on this building and the site!
